    Manager Points & Rankings
    

    Q: How does Manager Rankings work? My manager points are way more than the ones shown there!
    A: Every slot you have has an individual ranking. If you play on all 4 slots, you'll have 4 positions on ranking. The position shown on user profile is the slot with the highest ranking. The points taken into account to determine your position on ranking are calculated this way:

    • Points from last 180 days will count 100%.
    • Points earned on next 520 (from 180 until 700) days will count less on different levels of percentage until they are ultimately counted at 1%.
    • All points older than 700 days will count 1% for your total.


  •  Achievements
    

    Q: I've won 10 cups already and I still don't have cup master achievement?
    A: Achievements were introduced on 14th October 2014. Some achievements only start counting after that date. Cup achievements are one of them, so only cups won after that date are taken into account!



  • Simulation time
    

    Q: My match was simulated before the time shown and I wasn't able to do my lineup and lost the match?
    A: Remaining time shown for next match it's an estimated time based on last simulation. We can't guarantee that matches are simulated at exact time. Matches can be simulated earlier or later, due to several factors (number of leagues removed/created on past 24h, number of users online...). The only thing we can guarantee (except in situations where there are major problems with servers) is that they are never simulated before 18:00h (GMT).
    We've split servers in groups with different simulation start time, just keep an eye on the start of the server where your league is and try to have your line up ready before that time.



  • Payment issues
    

    Q: I've payed, but did not received my boss coins?
    A: Sometimes there could be a little bit of delay in receiving them, so the first step is to give it some time.

  • Scout doesn't come back with with 90+ players
    

    Q: Why the scout doesn't come back with the skill level I requested?
    A: There are very little players with still level 90+, since the scout always brings back three players it will return with the next best thing when there are no 90+ players available.
    The only thing you could try is to wider you're search range and see if it comes back with the skill level requsted then.



  • Criteria invites
    

    Q: Why I didn't receive bc's after inviting managers?
    A: To be able to get these rewards, following criteria have to be met:

    • New user has to sign up via invitation link and on same session (if user installs app, closes it and later open it an sign up, it won't work, he needs to click link again and only after create the account)
    • Invited user has to create a new account and not joining league with an existing one
    • There's a maximum of 10 rewards, so all invites sent after that won't give any reward

    What am I supposed to do now?

    A : There is a "hidden" button close to that blue button that says Create a new topic. It may look invisible on your screens but trust me it is there.
    Please now use your mouse ( while working on a pc - website ) or your finger tip ( while using your mobile phone - app ) to tap around the blank area that surrounds the blue button.
    Usually you need to click right on top of this button. Magically you will see the Reply box opened for you to make your post and bring an old topic back to life!

        Match Experience's Feature
    

    Q : How does the game engine work during the Match Experience?

    A : The game's engine calculates chances, missed attempts of scoring a goal, corners, fouls, yellow cards/red cards, penalty kicks , freekicks etc etc... These are real events that happen during the match simulation and are correct ( simulation wise ones ). But after that comes another task of the game engine, which assigns one random ''reason'' for every specific situation/event that occured on the field.
    The events during each match do happen, but the way those events happened (like explained above) are picked randomly from a list of the game engine. For more details have a look at the link below :
    https://forum.onlinesoccermanager.com/topic/44119/how-authentic-is-the-match-experience-feature/5
    And lastly, the most accurate comments are indeed the ones mentioned by the commentators at the end of each match.
